A section of technocrats in the office of the Leader of the Opposition are in panic as she announces a clean up exercise to align the office to the task ahead.
The concern is majorly among those who allied with the General Mugisha Muntu wing before he quit the Forum for Democratic Change and are believed to be members of his political outfit the new formation
Speaking to the Nile post from her offices at parliament, LOP Betty Aol Ochan confirmed that reviews are on going to recommend staff for either contract renewal or termination
Aol explained that, “It is true that there are some staff who belong to the new formation and have since failed to work, you send them to deliver documents to Najjanankumbi and they do not want to either because of bad relationships with people there or because of political differences with some people in FDC.”
Aol says the restructuring process will be conducted objectively and those who are working well and even some who are willing to change will have their contracts renewed
She however confirms that some of the new formation people will be shown the exit from the employment of the parliamentary commission
Although such employees are hired by the parliamentary commission ,precedent shows that every time a leader of the opposition is fired a number of staff allied to that particular person get axed as well
Some of the employees axed during Nandala Mafabi’s tenure are set for a return to the parliamentary service after change of fortunes at Najjanankumbi.
